    Default Medical Board Classification - "PUA,1,2,3 Fit Grade III"

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask for help with Medical Board Classification unknown to me.
    It was a former Fitter who was trained as FE but later again returned to the Fitter.

    8.6.1944 Medical Board PUA,1,2,3 Fit Grade III - my guess: Permanent Unfit in category A (Flying Duties) for 1 Full Flying Duties and 2 Limited Flying Duties and
    3 Combatant passenger, i.e. unfit for FE duties (A3B requested), but what is the meaning of "Grade III"?

    12.9,1944 Medical Board Fit Grade III W. Europe

    I understand he was not allowed to continue in flying duties but I would like to understand the classification he had.

    TIA

    This is what I have on the Medical Grades

    Grade I

    Those who, subject only to such minor disabilities as can be remedied or adequately compensated by artificial means, attain the full normal standard of health and strength, and are capable of enduring physical exertion suitable to their age.

    Grade II

    Those who, while suffering from disabilities disqualifying them from Grade I, do not suffer from progressive organic disease, have fair hearing and vision, are of moderate muscular development, and are able to undergo a considerable amount of physical exertion not involving severe strain.
    When a person is placed on this grade solely on account of either defects of visual acuity or deformities of the lower extremities, or both, the letter “(a)” followed by the words “vision” or “feet” in brackets is inserted after the grade.

    Grade III

    Those who present such marked physical disabilities or evidence of past disease that they are not fit for the amount of exertion required for Grade II

    Grade IV

    Those who suffer from progressive organic disease or are for other reasons permanently incapable of the kind or degree of exertion required by Grade III

    I hope this helps

    Regards
